Welcome to 740 House

You can enjoy our space from the privacy of your own private, sunny room. Traveling with another family or group? Rent two or three rooms (listed on Airbnb) for a vacation that can include time together and some privacy too.

A brand new, luxurious guest space, the Gold Room is a beautifully decorated oasis, with an antique rice-carved queen bed, new Kingsdown mattress set, reading corner, views of the lovely yard that leads to a stunning view of the cliffs overlooking the Potomac,and a quaint private bath with shower.

Our house is very homey and decorated lovingly with old-time charm and modern convenience. The rooms are freshly painted and display our extensive art collection. If you are looking for a clean, welcoming, comfortable space right in the heart of Harper's Ferry. Come on down! Call on us for anything you need, including conversation!

We offer three sunlit bedrooms. Downstairs you'll find the Gold Room, a brand-new luxurious guest space with private in-suite bath overlooking the Potomac River bluffs. Decorated in restful golds and pastels the room features a rosewood desk, reading corner and a vintage queen-size four-poster-rice-carved bed with a brand new Kingsdown mattress set.

Two quaint upstairs bedrooms (with a full-size bed in Sweet Room and a queen size bed in Charming Room) offer views of historic Harpers Ferry and a quiet spot to rest from the day's activities . When both guest rooms are occupied, they share a striking period bathroom complete with claw tub, pedestal sink, toiletries, and piles of towels.

We prefer two night minimums; but one night may be available in certain seasons and if you call close to your proposed arrival time. We are required to collect a 10 percent Harper's Ferry room tax and state sales tax upon your arrival

The living room, dining room, porch, front hall, yard and gazebo are shared spaces, and there is plenty of parking--a rarity in Harpers Ferry.

If you lie in the hammock at night, the stars are brilliant, and you may hear the Potomac River below.

Or walk out our driveway to the end of East Ridge Street for a stunning view of the Potomac River, the railroad bridge, and the breath-taking confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers below,

Make us your home base as you hike, shop, pursue zip lines and outdoor adventures, raft, tour history, or cross country ski. After a full day, visit our local spa, then come home to hot chocolate or iced tea and cookies, swing on the hammock, sit by the fire, or rock on the front porch as the hikers go by. Come to our friendly place!

You'll have access to our spacious front hall and living room. In the morning, you may enjoy a simple breakfast in our charming dining room, the gazebo, or the wide wrap-around porch.

Evenings, read in the quaint living room by a cozy fire. Feel hearty? Try swinging under the stars on a hammock and listening for the sounds of the Potomac River rushing by.

Or walk to the end of East Ridge Street for a breathtaking view of the Potomac River, the railroad bridge, and the breath-taking confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers.

You will also have access to our very friendly, non-allergenic Golden Doodle, Asher (a cross between a Golden Retriever and a Poodle). He is a presence, so if you don't like dogs, you may want to keep a wide birth.

If you own a dog, we can set up a vacation visit for your pooch with Asher's dog-loving sitters who offer no cages, large fenced-in rural properties, and an overall good time. Asher cries when they bring him home.

I live in the house too--and will be at home during your visit; but we close off some doors when we have guests to give us all some privacy. That said, I'm happy to host and am available for anything you need, including conversation! Meeting you is a treat!

We moved to Harper's Ferry a few years ago to get away from the DC rat race. Here we've found kind and caring neighbors, incredible natural beauty including hiking trails, biking, charming small towns (especially ours), tons of fascinating American history -- and peace and quiet.

The Appalachian trail comes right into town, and Harpers Ferry is a major watering hole for "through hikers"-- people hiking from Georgia to Maine. River rafting companies are a ten-minute drive from town.

The area is historic: "Lower town" remains in quaint civil-wart-era style with both operating and historic shops and restaurants.

Some highlights you can still see around town: The arsenal that John Brown raided in 1859, in an attempt to launch an armed slave revolt. The key battlefields in the 1860's that pitted Union and Confederate armies against each other. (Bolivar Heights and Antietam are among the famous.) The buildings that housed Storer College, a historically black college that operated from 1865 until 1955. Frequent civil war reenactments by the National Park Service. They even shoot canon!

Among many interesting local towns are Shepherdstown (the home of Shepherd University) and Charles town (where John Brown was executed.) Both feature historic sites, cute shops, and a variety of restaurants.

There is a shuttle into town -- but you can just walk! You can borrow our bikes when available too.

You can get-one day passes at a gym/pool at Shepherd University in Sheperdstown. There is an outdoor pool at close-by KOA Campground.

Workers lived in 740 House during the civil war--you can see evidence of this period in the stone basement, which remained after the house burned down and was rebuilt in the early 1900's. Our place is called "a four-square" house, referring to the room arrangement and the traditional large front foyer.

If you lie in the hammock at night, the stars are brilliant, and you may hear the Potomac River below.


Normas de la casa

Enjoy the common rooms and backyard. Rock on the porch and muse in the gazebo. Read in the living room by the fire. Pet the dog. Choose your breakfast. But no smoking in the house, and a reasonable level of quiet for a place being shared. No parties (but friends may visit and, on certain occasions, join us at breakfast.)
Upon your arrival, we are required to collect a tax for Harpers Ferry and Jefferson County of 13% of your bill.

We prefer two or three-night minimum stays, but encourage you to see what is available for one-day stays at the last minute.

We really enjoyed staying with Bill. His home is beautiful and close to all in Harper's Ferry. Bill went out of his way to make us feel at home. He greeted us with lovely refreshments and made us a totally delicious breakfast, and we got some much needed friendly dog time. Also, the coffee was strong, plentiful and tasty. He gave us lots of helpful advice about the area. We hope to stay with him again soon.

My husband and I had a lovely stay. We visited in the winter but were able to walk to the downtown area from the house. Be prepared, the walk back is all uphill! Bill was a great host and served a delicious breakfast. There are two sweet dogs in the home, but if you are a not a dog person, this is not the place for you.

Bill was s gracious host, and his home was very comfortable. He was flexible with our check in time and gave us great suggestions for our visit. My husband wanted to do something special for my birthday, and Bill went out of his way to pick up flowers and a cake for our arrival. Bill is a great cook, and breakfast was wonderful and filling! We stayed in the Gold Room. The bed was comfortable and shower had great water pressure. We would definitely recommend staying at Bill's place when visiting Harper's Ferry and surrounding towns. It was a great getaway from DC!

Bill was a gracious and kind host who was generous, doting, and entertaining. Delicious wine and cheese in the evenings, and spectacular breakfasts in the morning, accompanied by delicious European-style coffee and heavy cream. The setting on the top of the hill is beautiful and right in between the downtown area on one side, and the several decent restaurants on the other (Bisou Bistro is awesome).

Bill was an excellent host. He was responsive to our needs and made our stay in Harper's Ferry seem personal and intimate. After a late afternoon arrival and a brief visit to town, Bill offered a much needed glass of wine. His recommendation for a local restaurant was spot-on, a ten minute walk and marvelous food. The Gold room, where we stayed, was inviting with an en suite bath and close proximity to the common rooms. Breakfast was a lovely affair, served family style, with an opportunity to visit with other guests. We stayed at the breakfast table well over an hour visiting, hearing about Bill's life, local politics, the community at large and opportunities for things to do in the area. He made guests feel at home and fostered a familial atmosphere. Conversation was abundant. Parking at the 740 House was convenient and secure and we were able to leave our car after check-out while we continued our explorations. I loved the location of the house, well situated between the hub-bub of town and businesses and restaurants in Bolivar. Given the opportunity, I would definitely return. We had a great experience!

Harper's Ferry is small, and 740 is close to everything in town. He gathered the guests together for wine in the late afternoon, then we already knew each other at breakfast. I was impressed and surprised what a lovely social event it was. Bill recommended a restaurant for dinner (Bisou Bistro) which was perfect.

We had a great time at Bill's B&B. Bill is an awesome host and has great breakfasts. We enjoyed the evenings on the wrap around front porch. His advise for finding the proper hiking trails was right on. All in all a great relaxing adventure!

I am taking up the host torch on my own after losing my wife, who adored hosting. I am an environmental chemist who enjoys the garden and building furniture. I love to spend time with family, especially my newborn twin granddaughters.
